On Saturday, June 12, the Metro area will be in a pickle.

The Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum hosts its annual Pickle Fest from 10 am to 3 pm.

It only costs $7 per adult and $5 for children to get in the gates.

For those with competition on their mind, visitors will have the chance to compete in the Pickle Eating Contest and the Pickle Packing Jar Contest.

“This open-air, outdoor event is the perfect outing that the entire family will enjoy. We’ll have several feature activities available throughout the grounds, as well as our usual attractions,” said Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson.

Some of those activities include live music, food and craft vendors, a slip-n slide, a dunking booth, an obstacle course, and a mini-golf. There will also be exhibitions and educational demonstrations.

The Children’s Barnyard and Small Town, Miss., which will feature several antique cars, will also be open.
